FARGO — Fargo-Moorhead's offensive onslaught continued unabated and starter Ryan Flores was again effective as the RedHawks blistered Gary SouthShore 13-5 on Tuesday before 2,502 at Newman Outdoor Field.

Trailing 2-0 after three, the RedHawks scored five runs in the fourth, seven more in the fifth and another in the sixth. Since a loss to Kane County to open a nine-game homestand, F-M has won six straight and averaged 13 runs per game.

The bottom third of the RedHawks' order — John Silviano, Alex Boxwell and Sam Dexter — was especially productive on Tuesday, combining to go 10-for-13 with two home runs, a double and six RBI. Silviano was 2-for-3 with his 23rd home run of the season and two RBI. Boxwell was 5-for-5 and scored twice and Dexter was 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI. Jordan George also homered and was 2-for-3 with three RBI. Manny Boscan had two hits and scored twice.

Flores improved to 8-2 going five innings and allowing three earned on eight hits and striking out nine. It hasn't hurt that the RedHawks have scored 50 runs during his five-game winning streak. He's 7-0 in his nine starts since joining the rotation in June. Four relievers threw an inning to close it out.

The RailCats and RedHawks play the second game of a three-game set at 7:02 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 25, at Newman.
